Why Don’t You Say What You Really Mean Rhoden Master This
WHY DON’T YOU SAY WHAT YOU REALLY MEAN RHODEN MASTER THIS ” I’M ALL FOR INCLUSION ”
O Black Box WHY are you
always so NEGATIVE why
don’t you write POSITIVE
stories UPLIFTING stories
about African Americans
in Sports today …
Well we do lots of POSITIVE stories IF you read everyday. But more to the point the Simpletons who FILL our mailbox with those complaints live in a fantasy world just the way the Sports Industry wants them to. Sports as MINDLESS entertainment so they don’t notice how badly they are getting screwed. Woo this sounds almost Marxian. Yes it does GROUCHO Marx the inspiration for Life in America.
Which brings up to the Masters
the G L O R I O U S Masters
the PINNACLE of Sports and
the APPEAL of the South
and in a moment to
Bill Rhoden one of
Favorite Foils who
is at The Masters
Here is the Deal. This year to put a nice SPIN on the 2008 Masters. In the days leading up to the Tournament. Augusta National Chairman Billy Payne to loud fanfare as Bill Rhoden put it “unveiled an aggressive, two-pronged initiative toward inclusion at a news conference Wednesday.” That’s right an AGGRESSIVE TWO PRONGED INITIATIVE TOWARD INCLUSION. Now where the Black Box comes from the Real World INCLUSION means they are now going to say we are going to do something for AFRICAN Americans. Yes it’s probably a PR scam but it’s the thought (sic) that counts !
So IF we were naive and thank God
( who unfortunately is White ) we
are NOT naive but IF we were
we’d expect an AFRICAN
American initiative from
to come next
Augusta National Chairman Billy Payne’s definition of an AGGRESSIVE INITIATIVE TOWARD INCLUSION is the announcement that as Rhoden explained it ” Three of Asia’s top-ranked players â€” Liang Wen-Chong of China, Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand and Jeev Milkha Singh of Indiaâ€” received special invitations to play in the Masters.” WOW UNBELIEVABLE three top ASIAN golfers are actually going to be allowed to play in this year’s Masters. PLEASE Mr. Payne come to your senses THREE top rated ASIAN players allowed in the Masters. Do you want to get stoned ?? Are you stoned ??
BUT THERE IS MORE
( believe it or not )
Again we turn to New York Times Sports Commentator Bill Rhoden, ” On Wednesday, as part of the youth initiative, the Masters televised its par-3 event in hopes that “kids will be inspired by seeing golf competed and conducted in a fun and family manner,” Payne said.” JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH where will this stop …..
Does The WHITE House know and
Thank God again there is NO more
That’s it the entire AGGRESSIVE TWO PRONGED AUGUSTA NATIONAL MASTERS MOTIVATED INITIATIVE TOWARD INCLUSION. Thank God again. We were worried maybe Payne was going to announce they were going to invite young Darkies from around these United States to come to Augusta National for a week of special GOLF instruction and to inspire them. Thank God they are not. Or that Payne was going to announce another INITIATIVE to have a second AFRICAN American playing in The Masters in addition to Tiger Woods ( who claims not to be anyway ) within 20 years by 2028.
Thank God again they are NOT or
WORSE still that Augusta National
Is going to establish and contribute handsomely to a $10 Million scholarship fund for young African American boys and girls who display serious talent for Golf and the potential to become pros. THANK GOD THEY DID NOT. Or that Augusta National was going to offer actual MEMBERSHIPS to another 4 or 5 AFRICAN Americans bringing that membership number all the way up to 10 !! DON’T WORRY. They aren’t.
It turns out AGGRESSIVE TWO PRONGED INITIATIVE TOWARD INCLUSION has absolutely NOTHING to do with or for or about AFRICAN Americans. Stop worrying. And don’t just believe us. Bill Rhoden delivered the same message in The New York Times the only difference is he was complimentary to Augusta Chairman Bill Payne and wrote his story as though it was SERIOUS news rather than Comedy. Then again what choice does Rhoden have working for The New York Times ??
Not that Bill Rhoden did not have any Criticism
listen to the RADICAL Bill Rhoden
” Expanding the game around the world and attracting young talent are noble initiatives for the Masters. Perhaps the tournament can use its great resources and incredible reach to attract prospective young golfers, especially young prospects who look like, say, Tiger Woods.”
Which leads us to our FINAL compliments
of this Box which do NOT go to
Augusta Chairman Billy Payne
who avoided mentioning
AFRICAN Americans but rather to
AFRICAN American Bill Rhoden
who in his long 828 word article
about INCLUSION at Augusta
INCREDIBLY used the phrase
AFRICAN American exactly
all of once GOOD work Bill !!
” ME TOO I’M FOR INCLUSION ”
